Smithing is used to turn ore into bars, weapons, armour, and arrowtips. Smithing an item takes two seconds. Utilizing Seeing Gold Potions gives a 10-75% chance to produce a Gold Bar (item).svg Gold Bar when smelting Silver Bar (item).svg Silver Bars. Purchasing and equipping Smithing Gloves (item).svg Smithing Gloves from the Shop causes a +50% bonus to Smithing XP while the gloves have charges remaining. Raising Smithing to Smithing Level 99 will unlock the Smithing Skillcape (item).svg Smithing Skillcape for purchase from the Shop.
